Manjaro ARM 22.12 released!

Manjaro ARM 22.12 released!

We are proud to announce the release of Manjaro ARM 22.12.

You can find all our images on!

Application for flashing images

We have our own GUI app to make it easy for users to flash a Manjaro ARM image on to an SD card, eMMC card or USB stick.
If you are on Manjaro ARM, simply install manjaro-arm-flasher and launch the app “Manjaro ARM Flasher” from your menu. This will download and flash the image of your choice.

You can also manually run the application (if you are not running Manjaro ARM) by downloading this python script, make it executable with chmod +x manjaro-arm-flasher, install the dependencies listed in the and then run it with sudo ./manjaro-arm-flasher.

First Time setup on Minimal edition

This release sports the First Time setup for all Minimal images, also via SSH. This means that at first boot, you will be asked about the following:

  • keyboard layout (except on pinebook, that is fixed to us layout)
  • username
  • additional user groups (optional)
  • full name
  • password for that username
  • password for root
  • timezone
  • locale
  • hostname

Then the setup script will set these settings and reboot to the login screen.

Please consider supporting Manjaro ARM directly via Patreon, Ko-Fi or Open Collective.
You can also donate to our upstream, which is Arch Linux ARM.


Manjaro ARM Generic EFI Sway edition 22.12 (but also 22.10 and, I believe, KDE Plasma edition) freshly flashed on Pinebook Pro does not produce any sound. I can open Pulseaudio control tool and verify that volume is not 0, and I also see that Pulseaudio thinks it is producing sound, but nothing comes out of the speakers. I know the speakers are not dead because the non-EFI edition seems to work. I boot using Tow-Boot on SPI.

Any idea what could be wrong? Can anyone replicate the issue?

Sound is not properly added in mainline yet.

To get around it, please install pinebookpro-post-install package and it’s dependencies with:

sudo pacman -S pinebookpro-post-install --overwrite "*"

and reboot. This should get you sound.
